On a mission to partake in all the above from my unconventional to-do list, I was determined to be cool, calm, and casual. In addition, to enjoy a very rare 24-hour day of No's: no waking up early, no meetings, and no inbox messaging related to work.
For some reason on this day I translated that into grabbing an old T-shirt that I literally have not worn in 8 or so years, then paired it with my embroidered jacket. I'm uncertain as to why I adore this embroidered jacket so much. It's dated, and like many jackets for me, a tad short at the hem of the sleeves, however hardly noticeable.
It's those moments that I don't take personal, because when I'm vintage shopping or find great thrifted pieces, occasionally I feel as if I've struck gold ... okay maybe silver this time, but sometimes even platinum as well! I know that some people may not understand, but obviously they've never found a fashion gem they wanted in the midst of the haus of "pre-loved" threads. The jacket: clearly a winner with the eyelet hole sleeves resembling the closures of stays in corset fashion, and the minimal faux fur trim embracing the neckline.
Sure, it wasn't quite as heavenly as many of my other treasured finds, but definitely a favourite and rightfully due for a style appreciative spotlight. So I wore this outfit, all very casual with bold spikes of colour and soothed by the dose of various shades of brown. It seemed perfect for a pleasant day of fun, relaxation, and reminiscing.
